Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Last night Louis Vuitton hosted a party to celebrate Glamour magazine’s three cover girls who grace their May 2011 issue.

Emma Stone arrived looking ethereal wearing a Louis Vuitton Pre-Fall 2011 dress.

The empire-waist dress is accented with bronze embellishment, so I’m glad she didn’t add any additional jewels.

Emma accessorized with Christian Louboutin Banana tie dye peep toes and a Louis Vuitton striped clutch from the Resort 2011 collection.

Curly blonde hair and pink lips completed her look.

Reese Witherspoon graces her second cover in so many weeks.

Last week it was People fior her wedding issue, this week she smolders on the cover of American Vogue’s May 2011 issue.

For the cover Peter Lindbergh captures the beautiful actress sporting marcel waves wearing a Roland Mouret Fritz silk and crepe camisole from the Spring 2011 collection.

The rest of her editorial, which she shares with an elephant, sees her wearing Christian Dior, Sophie Theallet, Narciso Rodriguez and Dolce & Gabbana.

In the magazine Reese talks about her new hubby and her “Water for Elephants” co-star Robert Pattinson shares his admiration for the actress.

On married life with Jim Toth: “He’s wonderful. He’s just a really great guy, and I feel really lucky. It’s so cute: Over the holidays I was at a department store in L.A. with my friends, and these three women from Oklahoma came up to me, and they said – Reese, We are so happy for yeeew. We liiike this guy for yeeew.’ And I said, ‘You do?!’ ‘Yes, ma’am. We think he is a niiice man. We think he is going to treat you well and be good to yeeew.’ I was like, ‘Really?’ So sweet! And I told them my mother likes him very much, too.” Read more…

Gwen Stefani graces the cover of Elle US May 2011 issue, which focuses on women in music.

Dusan Reljin shot the beautiful singer and designer wearing Givenchy and Michael Kors.

Gwen shares that she takes much pride in her appearance, but she would never place herself in the same category as Lady Gaga or Katy Perry, as she thinks they are much sexier than her.

I totally disagree. Gwen is waaaay hotter than those two put together.

The Women in Music issue also features multiple female singers stars including Jennifer Hudson, Adele, Jennifer Lopez, Nicki Minaj, Rihanna, Beyonce and Willow Smith.

Read more at Elle.com. The May issue hits newsstands April 12.

Here are some extracts from Gwen’s interview:

On writing hits: “I do! Why wouldn’t you want that many people listening to the songs that you wrote? There’s no way to go back after you have had it. So the intentions of even the solo records were always about trying to write those guilty-pleasure albums that just get in your head and you can’t get out. I’m not cool, I’m not into the B-sides. Prince, who is one of my idols, gave me some advice when I worked with him: “Have you ever just tried writing a hit? Like, don’t just try writing a song, try and write a hit song.” I remember him saying that and me thinking, Yeah, you’re right. Why would you write anything else?” Read more…

Rihanna channels her inner Ariel from The Little Mermaid on cover of the April 2011 edition of American Vogue.

The singer was so excited about her cover, she tweeted it straight after the shoot.

As Vogue covers are features are supposed to be confidential, I wasn’t surprised to see her tweet taken down a few hours later.

I can see why she was so excited. She got to wear a stunning embroidered Chanel Pre-Fall 2011 dress on the cover which was shot by famed photographer Annie Leibovitz.

The editors at Vogue didn’t try to portray Rihanna as anyone other than herself. She gives us sexy rock chic bad-ass attitude plus a few gentle shots of her skipping down the beach wearing Lanvin.

Rihanna wears a red hot Hervé Léger by Max Azria cutout swimsuit with Alexander Wang open-toe booties; a Chloé one-shoulder mesh dress and a Donna Karan midnight-blue bodysuit in the rest of her beautiful editorial.

The April issue is called the “Shape Issue”, so Rihanna talks about loving her figure and hating the gym. Here are some extracts from her interview:

On cutting her hair and dying it black back in 2007: “When I cut my hair, the whole sound changed, my style changed.” Read more…

Leighton Meester shakes things up on the cover of L’Officiel Lithuania March 2011.

It’s not often we celebrities wearing a mix of runway looks, but here we see Leighton wearing a Lanvin Spring 2011 neon pink top with an emerald green Jil Sander Spring 2011 skirt.

Her hair is slicked back hair and pink stilettos peaking out of the bottom.

The rest of Leighton’s editorial sees her wearing MaxMara, YSL, Gucci and Fendi.

What I love most about this editorial is that L’Officiel Lithuania have given Leighton a grown up sophisticated wardrobe.

Usually most editiorials have a ‘Blair-esqe’ Teen Vogue quality about them, or downtown New Yorker vibe, but this shoot is in total contrast to those stereotypical editorials she’s done in the past.

In this editorial I see her as a strong confident woman and I definitely don’t see a hint of Blair Waldorf. For me this is her best ever shoot.

Alexey Yurenev photographed this editorial and Peju Famojure was the stylist. Read more…

British actress Keira Knightley gives us her signature pout as she graces the cover of Elle UK for their March 2011 issue.

Keira wears Tom Ford’s much-coveted debut women’s collection in the editorial.

In her exclusive interview with Elle, Keira talks about the power of fashion and her own personal style.

The full shoot and interview appears in the March issue of Elle, out February 2nd. You can also check out the behind-the-scenes video at Elle UK.

Here are some extracts.

On her Chanel campaign: “There’s something about the story of the woman, the survivor nature of her. And that personality has continued within the whole house. It’s a very small group of people who do this enormous, huge, worldwide thing. I just thought, “Ooh, I’d quite like to look into your world.” You walk into the ateliers and it’s nearly like stepping back in time, even though it’s so modern and so current. The skill and the thought that goes into everything. I find it really interesting.” Read more…
